Isabelle Schad


Tanz im August | KINDL - Zentrum für zeitgenössische Kunst

Production Details / Press Releases

In her performative exhibition “INSIDE OUT” Isabelle Schad shows choreographic sculptures that are experienced in their powerfully sensuous moving forms. Her work situates itself between dance and visual art, draws on her ongoing fascination with Aikido-Zen, community building and her long-term collaboration with Laurent Goldring, whom she invited to participate in “INSIDE OUT”. With subtle exactness they form bodies, material such as clothing, lengths of fabric and movement into sculptures which de ne their own space and evolve a contemplative quality.

The dancer and choreographer Isabelle Schad studied classical dance in Stuttgart, and worked with numerous choreographers before beginning to develop her own works in 1999. Her research concentrates on the relationships between bodies, choreography, (re) presentation, form and experience, and sees physical praxis as a place for learning processes, community and political participation. Her innovative projects are shown around the world in various contexts at festivals, museums or theatre spaces. She teaches internationally and is co-organiser of the work space Wiesenburg-Halle in Berlin. Isabelle Schad is a daily practitioner of Zen shiatsu and aikido zen. She has collaborated continuously with the visual artist Laurent Goldring for around ten years. Isabelle showed work at Tanz im August in 2003 and 2009.
